Endometrioid adenofibroma is a benign epithelial and stromal tumor with an endometrioid epithelial component. Less than 20% of the surface epithelial tumors of the ovary have endometrioid differentiation. The majority of endometrioid ovarian neoplasms are carcinomas and the benign form is rarely find....

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: May 29, 2017

This is a 6 year retrospective analysis of the therapeutic efficacy and safety of Combined Aliskiren (150 mg a day) and Losartan (100 mg a day) in non Diabetic Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients. The objective of this Second (2nd) Phase study was to ascertain the proportion of patients who would remain in remission for the next 3 years and for those who had a relapse of proteinuria after stopping treatment in order to decide when would be an optimum time to stop therapy as well as to ascertai...

Cystic Lymphangioma: an Uncommon Cause of Pediatric Abdominal Pain

Ivan Fernandez-Vega

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: May 12, 2017

Lymphangiomas are benign congenital malformations characterized by an abnormal dilatation and proliferation of lymphatic spaces, which are found predominantly in children. Symptomatic mesenteric cyst accounts for only 1 in 20,000 in acute pediatric admission. We describe hereby a case of a previously healthy 6-year-old girl who presented acute three-day pain localized over the right upper abdominal quadrant due to intestinal obstruction....

Investigation of the Relationship between Malignant Tumors Originated from Peritoneal and Müllerian Epithelium with the Primary and Secondary Müllerian Systems-Immunohistochemical Analysis with Six Markers

Ayse Ciftci, Handan Aker and Hatice Ozer

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: April 20, 2017

The origin of ovarian epithelial tumors is still indistinct. Müllerian and coelomic hypothesis are controversial. Recently, there is also a small number of reports that tubo-peritoneal junction may play an important role in the development of tubo-ovarian tumors. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the relationship between tumors originating from Mullerian epithelium and peritoneal mesothelium, in other words primary and secondary Müllerian systems....

Aortopathy in Bicuspid Aortic Valve and Marfan Syndrome is Characterized by a Lack of Activation Potential of the Epicardium in the Ascending Aorta

Nimrat Grewal, Marie-Jose Goumans, Marco C DeRuiter, Robert JM Klautz, Robert E Poelmann, Barbara JM Mulder, Ad JJC Bogers, Adriana C Gittenberger-de Groot

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: February 20, 2017

Patients with a bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) and Marfan syndrome (MFS) have increased susceptibility for development of aortopathy. In the heart, epicardial cells expressing Wilms tumor suppressor protein (Wt1) are known to become activated after myocardial infarction. We hypothesize that epicardium covering the aorta might show a similar response in BAV and MFS in pathologic conditions....

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy-like Neuropathological Findings without a History of Trauma

Andrew F Gao, David Ramsay, Richelle Twose, Ekaterina Rogaeva, Charles Tator and Lili-Naz Hazrati

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 12, 2017

Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by neurocognitive decline and abnormal neuronal and glial deposition of hyperphosphorylated-tau in a pattern distinct from other tauopathies. These changes are hypothesized to occur following repeated mild traumatic brain injury. We report a case of CTE-like neuropathological changes, and features of motor neuron disease in a patient without history of either head trauma or participation in activities associated ...
